Ichiba vs H&R?

Postby toayoztan » Wed Feb 20, 2013 5:36 pm

So I'm looking for either 20 or 25mm wheel spacers in the rear.

I'll be running 17x9 35+ with 255/40.

I have brand new stock OEM wheel studs.

There's two brands, Ichiba and H&R that seem to be reputable.

On either of those, it seems I would need to run the setup that bolt to the stock hub and has its own studs pressed into the spacer.

Several questions:

1) Overall, which do you recommend, ichiba or h&r?

2) Should I even consider running this style stud, or should I put in extended ARP studs?

3) If ARP extended studs, what's the part # you've found to work?

4) To confirm, our center bore is 54.1?

Honestly, I don't want to pull the knuckle/hub apart all over again just to put in extended ARP wheel studs, unless i'm convincned it's absolutely necessary/safer to do because the other setup is a "for-sure" crap deal. I didn't think I'd be needing or using them so I went with OEM new studs.

I hear about Ichiba studs being of sub-optimal quality with complaints of them breaking or what not. Not sure if people aren't running hub ring, etc to help reduce load on the studs. I haven't really heard much about the H&R studs being poor quality yet (DRM style).

What do you guys think?

Will be running upwards of 500+hp.

I'm personally using the H&R spacers and found them to be fantastic quality.

I ran h&r spacers on the rear for several years with no problems. Some of what I read on spacers is pressed style is preferred over 15-20mm. I would run 25mm in the rear. The rear fenders flare a bit more than the fronts so you will have a little bit more space to fill, plus it gives you guaranteed clearance of any struts. I have the exact setup you are doing (38et instead of 35) and even with I can go another 10+mm in the rear.

But you guys aren't running extended studs, correct?

I use bolt on and the extended studs on the race car. HR is good stuff and a company I deal with.
54.1 is correct

Alright, H&R 25mm DRM it is, thanks guys!

Seems like you can't find them cheaper than 150 bucks-ish...spending money on this car never ends!

Searching by the part number provided by H&R's website, I see autoplicity has them for the cheapest...too good to be true? I've never heard or dealt with them.

You can also purchase from me (xiiimotorsports) authorized alltrac.net vendor. You will be sure to get the best price and support a forum vendor is always nice :)

Yeah I didn't think about going through our own vendors (brain fart).

According to H&R, part # is 5025541.
